Description

The bluegrasses rank highest among those grasses used as amenity turfgrasses. They comprise the most important, most popular, and the most richly colored of all turfgrasses and have found excellent adaptation in the United States, Europe, and the cooler regions of Asia. The bluegrasses, and in particular the Kentucky bluegrasses, have been subjected to the most rigorous breeding and screening efforts, with the resulting release of the greatest numbers of improved cultivars of any turfgrass species. The 2000 National Turfgrass Evaluation Programs (NTEP) Kentucky Bluegrass Trial (High Maintenance) included 173 cultivars that were evaluated for their tolerance to and performance under normal mid-Maine conditions.
